Craig Kitterman (Sr Technical Evangelist) and Sumit Chawla(Technical PM/Architect) from the  Microsoft Interoperability Strategy Team were at MIX10 talking about Windows Azure Interoperability.
Sumit gave a talk (“Building PHP Applications using the Windows Azure Platform”) where he announced the new Windows Azure Command-line Tools for PHP Community Technology Preview (CTP).  The tools are available under an open source BSD license.

In a nutshell, these tools enable developers to easily package and deploy PHP applications to Windows Azure using a simple command-line tool without any Integrated Development Environment (IDE). This project is actually the result of feedback we received from many PHP developers who are using various IDEs (or none), who told us that a command-line tool would be a great addition to the Windows Azure Tools for Eclipse project.
